When my Guinea pig goes to squeek it sounds like he's struggling to get a noise out then when he does squeek it sounds quite airy. Should I be worried?

Mine does something similar, most of her wheeks sound really breathy, but she has nothing wrong and it's just the way she sounds. Your piggy might be the same :)

Can't help, all mine are quite vocal and have real depth when wheeking. As long as you can't hear any rattle in their breathing.

I've had a pig with a broken wheeker and another that wore out over time.

It can happen sometimes.

Has it always been like that @Stevenxxx , or is it something new?

I wouldn't recommend dashing to the vet over it but if you have any concerns then it's worth having a health check done at some point.

It's something that's happened over the past few months but I'll see how it goes ☺
